After taking out Jake Ellenberger this past weekend, Kelvin Gastelum has already been booked to fight another welterweight contender in Tyron Woodley.

The UFC has announced that the two will fight January 31st, at UFC 183 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The bout will co-headline the upcoming card, which will feature Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz in the main event.

Gastelum (10-0) tapped Ellenberger with a first round, rear-naked-choke at UFC 180 to record his fifth win with the promotion.

Woodley (14-3) hasn’t fought since August, when he stopped Dong Hyun Kim at a Fight Night card in China. Prior to that, Woodley was decisioned by Rory MacDonald at UFC 174 in June.

Gastelum is currently ranked #7 in the UFC’s welterweight division, while Woodley is positioned at #3.
